Hello! One of the newest stencils from A Colorful Life Designs is called Mum Mat. It’s a big 6×9 stencil. And yes, I see the lovely petals of a mum, but I also see flames, and flames mean dragon in my world, so I decided to make a dragon card. Plus, I hadn’t gotten to use the Happiness & Prosperity Sparkle Blend from Doodles Paper Playground, so this was a great time to break it out.

I took some white Smooth Bristol Cardstock and sprayed the heck out of it with Dylusions sprays. I used Lemon Zest and Cherry Pie. They make a wonderful orange when they come together, and it really made Mum Mat look like flames. I cut the panel in half, and now I’ve got a second background for another card. Oh! Plus, I flipped the sprayed stencil on to another piece of Bristol for even more backgrounds!
So I’ve got flames…now I needed a dragon. I decided to go with one of the cute little dragons from Sweet Sentiment’s Baby Dragons stamp set. I colored him with Copics. Since I decided to make the card a shaker, I die cut a rectangular window and added the awesome Happiness & Prosperity Sparkle Blend. There are little dragon heads in the Blend! Plus, the red and gold sequins went perfectly with my stenciled background. I added a sentiment from the Baby Dragon stamp set, and painted the edge of my card base yellow with Dandelion Fireworks! Spray from Imagine.
I really love this new Mum Mat stencil. I am excited to use it to make something other than flames, because I think it’s going to look terrific.
